I now have all the blocks for my Red Version of my pattern "CRUSH" My Red Rock Crush ready to sew up! Remember I asked about the LARGE dot or SMALL dots? (in the making at this link)... I decided to use both, why not! My pattern is inspired by an antique quilt block I saw, but i made it MUCH easier to sew.. like WAY easier and fast! I pulled mostly red and red/white prints, including my coveted out of print Lobster fabric which I may .. or may not.. have yardage of. So love this with the BIG... Continue reading

Glad you love my book Diana! hope you buy one!
I shared my new book's arrival with you the other day HERE, and now I'm sitting on pins and needles awaiting cartons of books! I want to share quilts from my book. Flower Pop is a wonderful way to use up scraps, and then use a Bella Solids border so you can have some amazing quilting done on it. My Favorite fruit has to be cherries!! Pair them with a chain block and this is a wonderful quilt to snuggle under. Meadow Breeze pairs up my Aqua fabrics with lots of pretty peach prints. Gorgeous on a bed. Feels like... Continue reading

Jeanne I use heat n bond light for my fusible.
Laura those are great questions! There are a few things you do for applique you heavily wash, but normal use is just fine with my technique.
Penny some of my recent books are in my online store http://www.patsloan.biz/category/books Many are out of print. Sometime I need to put a list of the books out there!
Lauren I will have my new book next month for the NY event! Also be sure your favorite shop has ordered!
thank you Shelly!

I have been waiting a long time for this moment, the arrival of MY copy of my 31st quilt book.. I want to share my first peek with you!

Opening the box, and pulling out my gorgeous new book so that I could hold it for real, well that IS the Best day EVER! The team at Martingale has a motto 'Create with Confidence'.. I'd like to add 'Create with style, with... Continue reading
